"The Color of Paradise" (2000) by the Iranian director Majid Majidi, and his "Children of Heaven" (1997) which was released just before it, are magnificent films, which gain much by being reviewed together.
"Children of Heaven" (the Farsi title, "Bacheha-ya Asseman," is closer in meaning to "Children of the Heavens" or "Celestial Children") is not so much a children's film as a film about children. It is a children's film almost in the same way that François Truffaut's "Small Change" (1976) is a children's film, although some of the subject matter of Truffaut's film demands more maturity on the part of the viewer. "Children of Heaven" tells the story of a young boy who inadvertantly loses his sister's shoes. Afraid to tell their parents, they share his sneakers, which is possible since their classes are staggered. The film is about how this catastrophe is resolved. Along the way we learn a lot about this poor Iranian family, all living together in one room, sleeping on mats on the floor. It is a wonderful story, full of warmth and growth, told from the boy's point of view. I dare not tell more. It is an excellent film. But "The Color of Paradise" is even better.
"The Color of Paradise" (in Farsi: "Rang-e Khoda," literally, "The Color of God") is a very different film, about a poor widower, living in a village near the Caspian Sea, trying to support his widowed mother and his three small children, one of whom, the boy, is blind. The father is hoping to remarry, and he is worried that the bride-to-be's supersticious family, if they learn that he has a blind son, will regard him as an unsuitable groom.

Iranian filmmakers are always going to have a hard time competing with Hollywood in the West. But with "A Color of Paradise", director Majid Majidi (acclaimed and best known for "The Children of Heaven", a story of a brother and sister who share the same pair of shoes) has produced a film that in content, themes and beauty makes a great deal of modern blockbusters look nasty and expensive. In Arabic (with English subtitles), it's the story of eight-year old Mohammad, a blind boy who attends a school for the blind in Tehran. When the school breaks for the summer months, Mohammad's father is the last to pick him up, even then only after trying to have the school keep the boy. His reasons become obvious after he retreats to his home in the Iranian countryside: taking care of his son is a burden in his quest to win the dowry and the hand of a local woman in marriage, and his son is a threat to his own future well-being. As Mohammad enjoys life in the picturesque countryside with his two sisters and grandmother, he is oblivious to his father's plans to get rid of him.
The movie develops a sharp contrast between the boy and his father: despite the fact that he can see, his father is caught up in blind selfishness where he cares only about himself; Despite his blindness, Mohammad "sees" the beauty of life, and is full of wonder at the sounds of birds and the magnificence of creation. As the blind boy reads the Braille alphabet in nature and reaches out to its helpless creatures, it becomes evident that the abandoned baby bird he rescues, as well as the trapped fish and overturned turtle we see are really metaphors of Mohammad's own helplessness before his father. The boy's grandmother is a quiet figure, but she sees both her blind grandson's worth and her son's moral corruption.

This is quite possibly the best movie I have ever had the privilege of viewing. I have watched it 5 times and am moved beyond words each time. Prepare yourself to be moved into a different world where little things mean the most. Also, keep plenty of Kleenex around-you'll definitely need it!
Thanks Majid Majidi!! I eagerly await your next great treasure.

I wish everyone in America could see this movie to understand the beauty that exists outside our borders in lands we have never thought twice, or even once, about. Truth is, we have so much to learn from the sensibilities of these far older peoples and from their history. The Color of Paradise opens that door for us to walk through the rest of our lives, and for that reason it is priceless. This movie shattered me, just as I knew it would. And it did it in a way that only art can, by exploring our most anciently held beliefs about love, honor, beauty, family, and God and ultimately changing how we feel about all of it, for the better. And it did as lightly and effortlessly as a feather falling to the ground. I will never forget this film, or want to, for the better person it has made me. Little Mohammed, you will always be with me. And may we all strive during the course of our lives to reflect the love you so naturally give us!

After reading raves about this movie on critics.com, we were disappointed to learn that it had already closed in New York City. However, we were lucky enough to catch it this week at Aspen's Filmfest. "The Color of Paradise" is a moving, unforgettable film, with lush cinematography and extraordinary performances -- including one of the very finest we've ever seen by a child actor. Don't miss it!
